Sunshine Blogger Award

My given questions and my answers:

1. How many posts do you have sitting in your drafts and or scheduled posts?

I’m awful for this! I have around five blog posts in draft and one scheduled.

2. When and why did you start blogging?

I started properly blogging in January this year. The reason why I started my blog was that I wanted to share more than just a few photos on Facebook of my travels. Also, I was going on a world cruise so I really wanted to share my experiences and tips on what to do in many ports I was visiting.

3. What is the weirdest or worst experience you’ve had at a business?

Going into a well-known designer handbag shop and asking to see a bag. The sales assistant gets one from under the counter all squashed up and not as desirable as the one on display. Shows my husband and myself the bag and it just looked awful!

We didn’t buy the bag! If she had shown me the nice bag on display, we would have bought it, but she made the handbag I had wanted for a long time look cheap their loss!

4. What is on your bucket list for the next 5 years?

Travelling more! I would like to see the Great Wall of China, go back to Japan, Australia and New Zealand. Also, I would like to go to the Maldives for my next big birthday.

5. What topic do you like blogging about most?

Travelling and cruising. I love sharing packing tips!

6. Which blog post are you most proud of?

10 Tips On How to Pack Just Hand Luggage for a Cruise. The reason being it is my most popular article on my blog.

7. How do you stay motivated to keep blogging even when viewership or positive feedback is low?

Just keep going as if a blog is not popular this month, it may be very popular six months down the line. I just keep writing.
